    Linksys Velop Jr. Whole Home Mesh reviews

    Velop Wireless AC-2600 Dual-Band Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (2 Units) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great but limited wi-fi range The system looks great but the performance is lacking. The two Pack the I have is supposed to cover 2000sf. My house is 1800 sf and a single level. Wi-fi is okay inside but as soon as I step outside, myself and anyone else connected drops the connection. My previous router was a Linksys WRT3200ACM AC3200 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router and I had great coverage throughout the house and both the front and back yard. Again, they look great but the performance is not what it should be. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Prefer my Linksys EA9300 A little disappointed with the Velop setup. The first node was an easy to setup, but the second one would not connect, getting an out of range message. I have a 2 story 1800 sq. feet home and the second node was near the staircase on the second floor less than 20 feet away from the first node. Poor range and speed. I am sticking with my current Linksys EA9300 wireless router with has MUCH better speed and range. It is a very nice looking small unit that will looks nice no matter where it is placed, just wish that it performed better. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup and great reliability The setup of this device was a breeze with the Linksys Smart Wifi App and I wouldn't have it any other way. This system although didn't quite cut it for me in my two story 2000 sqft home. I did notice a few "dead spots" and I really was amazed that with this router I wasn't getting full coverage. For a bigger home or a home like mine I would definitely recommend either getting the three pack or the bigger and better Velop. I did like and enjoy this router It just simply wouldn't cut it for me in my home. Setup took less than 5 minutes to get up and running. I also really enjoyed how the app would tell me what placements of the Velops were ideal. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Whole House Wifi Installation was easy - Following the Quick Start Guide - Connect First Node to your router using the one of the examples. Download & Launch Linksys App - open App & Select Launch Setup . Follow setup instructions. Connect next Node using wireless or wired connection - Select add new node from App & follow instructions. The wifi connections have great through put. The blue light is on the top of the Node & I turned the Nodes on their side so that I could see Light without being right on top of Node.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Coverage I bought this Velop AC2600 a month ago and have to say it does pretty well. For starters setup was a breeze using the Linksys Smart WiFi app it took about 20 minutes or less to set up both nodes. I find it easier to set up the second node close to the first one then moving it once complete. Download speeds are pretty fast for the mbps this unit was designed for. Be sure when picking out a Velop system you know this unit is intended more for a small home or apt. If you need to cover more space then you’ll need to ad more nodes. If you have a large home try the Velop tri-band system it works amazingly, especially if you have a lot of devices connected to it and say goodbye to dead spots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good way to expand my existing Velop system! I added this Linksys Velop Intelligent Mesh WiFi System, 2-Pack White (AC2600) ads nodes to my existing Linksys Velop Intelligent Mesh WiFi System, Tri-Band, 3-Pack White (AC6600) network. I had little or no learning curve because I did not have to set up a new Velop system. My biggest concern was mixing different node types, which turned out to be no big deal. In fact, the design of the AC2600 was a little nicer than the AC6600. The shorter nodes don't tip or get knocked over as easily. The side ports for the power and ethernet cables are easy to access. This product would be a good fit for a basic setup for to 3000 square feet as the box suggests. Or, it is good way to add nodes to expand coverage for a more complicated setup such as mine, covering up to my 4000 square foot house and 5000 square foot patio, pool deck, and yard area. Overall, a good product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mesh WiFi system These things are awesome. I don't lose my wifi signal anywhere in my house now. When you move from one room to another if it loses signal from the main router the mesh box pics up the signal and you connect to that box. It is great. And the wifi speed never slows down or gets weak. They are easy to set up. I had them connected to my home router in about 15 minutes. I received these as a promotion to give my honest review, and I can tell you I would buy them no matter what. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Say goodbye to weak WiFi. Say goodbye to weak WiFi at the far edges of your home or office. The intelligent, yet so easy to use, dual-band Linksys Velop Mesh WiFi system will cover you and your data hungry devices with a blanket of super-fast, full-strength WiFi. Once reserved for commercial enterprises, Linksys has made Mesh WiFi affordable with the Velop system. Easy to follow, walk through instructions, make it simple to setup. I substituted our rock-solid Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream AC5400 WiFi router with a pair of the Velop Mesh nodes. If you are not familiar with the EA9500, it is one of the most powerful, feature rich routers on the market. But, as powerful as it is, it was sometimes challenging to get a strong signal to the downstairs rooms or to the furthest distance from the router. Range extenders helped, but our devices would need to reconnect to the extender node and the best way to describe that process is clunky. I became the WiFi technical support person for our less technically skilled guests and family members when using range extenders. The Linksys Velop system automatically manages the channels for your device, so it maximizes data throughput. Even better, it allows you to seamlessly move between rooms and areas with uninterrupted, full strength coverage to your device. It does the work of switching or handing off your device to the next node. Remember how I said a range extender reconnection is clunky? The Velop system process is automatic and smooth as silk. WiFi users do not even realize they are switching nodes! The Velop system automatically installs updates, covers up to 3,000 square feet using 2 nodes, includes easy to use configuration tools to tell you the best place to put the nodes and some great parental control and security software. Guest SSID and password option is built in as well. I must mention that the Velop nodes are designed to blend in with the environment and are not garish, antenna laden, hardware chunks. I would absolutely recommend the Linksys Velop system to anyone interested in flawless, full-strength WiFi coverage to the far edges of their home or office.
